I love to read and am always looking for something to use to mark my place in a book.
I usually end up using something that is nearby like a bobby pin that's been in my hair,
a rubber band, or a tissue (unused of course).
I really do have bookmarks.....somewhere :)
So I whipped up a fun acorn bookmark and hopefully it will take the place of bobby pins.
This is what you need to make your own:
hot glue gun and glue
Cut 2 pieces of felt to 1.5 inches wide and 7 inches long.
Use a hole punch to make a hole at the top
(I had to push hard in order to make a hole in the felt).
Cut out 4 acorns and the top
then hot glue the top to the bottom.
Cut one piece of cardboard that is smaller than the felt
(I used a fruit snack box for the cardboard)
and hot glue onto one piece of felt.
Sew the acorns onto the felt
and then hot glue the tops down
(You could skip the hand sewing and just hot glue the acorns on).
Put both pieces of felt together and sew along the edges.
Tie some ribbon through the hole and voila! You're done :)
Now put your delightful new bookmark into the book that you're reading and enjoy!
Have a splendid day, sweet friends!
